10 Commandments For a Responsible Ferret Guardian
1) My life is likely to last 5-10 years. Any separation from you will be painful. When you decide to make me part of your life, let it be forever. If at some time in our lives you cannot keep me, make sure that my new home will provide what I need and will supply the love, care and socialization I crave.
Do’s & Don’ts
All of us have ferret stories that we would like to share with others. If you have a story that you think someone else would like to hear or if you just want to share, please either write us or email us.
I would like to tell you about Pandora. I got Pandora at the last Round-Up. Her owner couldn’t keep her any longer and I needed another one like a hole in the head. Pandora was about a year old and came with her name. I came to understand that she had been named appropriately. Pandora is a small German silver mitt and is totally full of it. She has more energy than a spinning top and can travel just about as fast. That first night in the hotel room she kept eight of us entertained as we sat around and talked and watch her run, explore, climb and cover the room. Now almost a year later, she never ceases to amaze me. You can just look at her and see her thinking or trying to figure something out. She is a problem solver. For Pandora’s own safety, she is kept in my bedroom, but she loves to be out in the house with the boys. I have a new barrier in the door that keeps her in; she used to be able to jump the old one, which was okay until she was found at the neighbor’s one day. She can jump better than any ferret I have seen. Since she was now allowed out with the boys only when the cat door to the enclosed patio was locked and I let her out, she was always trying to figure out how to get out. When I was going on vacation, I put my suitcase over the barrier and put my right leg over and slower than usual brought my left leg over. Attached to my left pant leg was Pandora! She had finally figured out how to get a ride out of the bedroom, much to my surprise and one more thing to add to my list of instructions, Watch out for the Flying Pandine, her new name. By the barrier I have put newspaper on top of a plastic carpet runner because the barrier has formed two new corners. One day when I was bending over to replace the newspaper, Pandora climbed up my leg, onto my back and was about to take a flying leap from my head to her freedom when I grabbed her. She is truly something else and I love her dearly.
This is my seven month old Mikey. I just wanted to share him with you.
My boyfriend and I are new ferret parents. Our ferret is 9 weeks old and her name is "Li'l B" or "Bee" for short... We took this picture of her a couple of days ago, and it was so priceless I had to share it with other ferret lovers. -Karen L.
